Applications for Hudson Valley Animal Shelter Fund grants are now available.

Eligible organizations are those providing services in Orange, Dutchess, Ulster, Putnam, Sullivan and Rockland counties and are dedicated to rescuing, sheltering and defending animals. In 2018, the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan’s selections committee will consider grants ranging from $1,000 to $12,000.

The Hudson Valley Animal Shelter Fund was established through a generous bequest from Jean Rowe to the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan. In Rowe's memory, this fund will provide financial assistance to nonprofit animal welfare agencies throughout the Hudson Valley in perpetuity.

Applications must be received by March 16, and awards will be announced in May. Applications may be found at cfosny.org.

Past grant recipients include:

Will Spay

Humane Society of Middletown

The Friends of Green Chimneys

Humane Society of Walden

Pets Alive

The Animal Rights Alliance

The Ulster County SPCA

The Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan, based in Montgomery, “connects people who care with causes that matter.” Established in 1999, the Foundation helps philanthropic individuals, businesses and organizations establish charitable funds that will award grants and scholarships, "for good, for ever."
